Have Cramps? Does It Burn When You Pee? It May Be a UTI?
Some people refer to a urinary tract infection as simply a bladder infection. A UTI is in essence an infection within the bladder. This also includes a bacterial infection in the urinary tract, urethra, ureters or kidneys. Most of the time, a UTI comes on suddenly, which is referred to as acute. Less often, it can be a chronic condition. Most UTIs are a result of the presence of E.coli according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Kidney and Digestive Diseases.
Anyone of any age can contract a UTI, but adult women are more at risk for anatomical reasons. While men at a lower risk, their symptoms tend to be worse when they do contract a urinary tract infection.

What Are the Symptoms of a UTI?
Sign of a urinary tract infection include:
- pressure or cramping in the lower back or lower abdomen
- having the sensation of needing to urinate frequently, sometimes called urgency
- burning or pain when urinating
- urine smelling foul
- needing to urinate more often
- bloody or cloudy urine
How Is a Urinary Tract Infection Diagnosed?
In most cases, a bladder infection or UTI is diagnosed via a urinalysis. This checks for the following:
- red blood cells
- white blood cells
A medical practitioner can also perform a urine culture to diagnose a UTI by testing for bacteria in the urine.
When to Seek Medical Help:
UTIs are a painful condition. As such, you should seek medical help if you are experiencing the symptoms of a UTI.
How Are UTIs Treated?
UTIs are treated through prescription antibiotic medications. These meds relieve the pain and burning and kill the bacteria associated with UTIs.
